So, the last time I posted I was on my way out of town for my job's annual national conference. The day I left, I got a letter in the mail. A very important letter telling me I was APPROVED! I called the doctor's office while I was driving to the conference, but had to leave a message. For the next three days, we played phone tag, as I was in classes for most of the day, and couldn't get on my phone.
So, I called this morning, now that I am back home. When I went in for my initial nutrition consult they were booked about 4-5 weeks out. When I called today, they said I could come in for pre-op testing tomorrow! Holy cow!!! I was originally thinking late June / early July, so I had not arranged anything at work... or home. There is no way I could pull off tomorrow so I pushed it back just a bit, but am officially scheduled! I go for pre-op testing on the 11th, have my last consult with my doc on the 16th ( at which time I start my 1 week pre-op diet) and officially get banded on the 23rd of May!
Everything fell into place at work re: my coverage, and two of my sisters already volunteered to hang at the hospital with me for the day. Only problem is I am not ready at home! So, I need advice from you all. I've trolled enough forums to have a general idea, but what things would you wish you had around the house. Especially if it is something I need to track down or order off the internet. I only have 3 weeks folks! Help a sister out!
